What if? Talks on migration. A series of video essays

3. marts 2020 Hvad vil der ske hvis al ind- og udvandring blev givet fri – worldwide? I posten med den overskrift skrev jeg om den århusianske kunster, Gudrun Steen-Andersens, fascinerende kreative Perpetuum Mobile-projekt tilbage i juli 2019. Det er en video-essay baseret installation hvor hun har bedt en række forskellige eksperter om at reagere på hendes spørgsmål. Alle links […]

War without remorse: A callous tweet about a tasteless celebration

August 23, 2019 Yesterday, the US Ambassador to Denmark, Carla Sands, tweeted the following: As will be seen below, there were four photos from an event in Copenhagen. The first shows all the people present, including former Danish Prime minister Fogh Rasmussen (also on the 4th photo with the ambassador), the present Danish defence minister, Trine Bramsen (also on the […]

Syriens Tystade Röster

2:a augusti 2019 Jag är mycket glad för och tacksam över att Patrik Paulovs utomordentliga bok med titeln “Syriens Tystade Röster” just har publiserats. Dess undertitel är “Om krigets vardag, stormaktsspelet och en svensk bistandsskandal” Det är otroligt viktigt att västliga mediers konstruerade och homogeniserade berättelse sedan 2011 inte får stå oemotsagda. Så också i Sverige. Jeg ska inte recensera […]

President Trump moves towards war on Iran

With his speech today – half an hour ago – U.S. President Trump has taken a huge step into uncharted territories. (Here on video).

 Behind him stands the hardline militarists whom he has himself appointed. 
 
 Secondly, neo-conservative individuals and think tanks who have brought the world only a series of failed wars and unspeakable human misery since the invasion of Afghanistan. 
 Third, the Military-Industrial-Media-Academic Complex, MIMAC, that is outside real democratic control and pushes relentlessly for ever-increasing armament and wars and serves the public all kinds of weird, fake images of what threatens the US.  
 Further, pro-Israeli and pro-Saudi lobby organisations and extremely wealthy individuals who buy political influence and thereby destroy the very foundations of democracy and free opinion formation.
 
 •  
 Against these numerically tiny elites stand virtually the rest of the world, including NATO allies and the EU.

Dette er ikke hverdag i Aleppo

Amnesty International lader i disse uger en bus udsmykke med et reklameslogan hvilket er blevet opfanget af Adweek Adfreak som “remarkable” markedsføring. Det er det skam – men af andre grunde end den der fremhæves i artiklen. Dette billede pryder også hele forsiden på Amnesty’s hjemmeside. Har Amnesty ikke lagt mærke til at Aleppo blev befriet for godt 7 måneder […]
